Heck ya, and still do!  My grandmother worked at a store that sold them and bought them for all the girls the year they were popular.  I was alittle older, but I keep it because it still smells like her house, I just loved the smell of my grandmas house.

I never had one, I remember wanting one cause TV make me believe my life will be better, but it was too expensive for us. I had a cute non-brand doll anyways =P.

I got one the year they came out -1984 (I’m pretty sure).  I know it was the year they came out because it’s a big joke in my family that my mom got into this huge fight with another mom at Toys R Us over the last doll and won.  She’s normally so calm but it was apparently an all out brawl.  Emmy Nicole.  I have a picture of us dressed alike and I was walking her in a stroller.  Ok, maybe my mom was a little weird…

My aunt bought me one after I broke my finger… I was so excited and even though my finger hurt like crazy I thought it was worth it to finally get a cabbage patch doll 😉

I had several and LOVED them!   My favourite though was my very first, which was one of the originals that had the baby powder smell to them.  Susan Elinor – still have her somewhere in my parents’ house! 


@ananeele:  It was right around that time, maybe 1983, as my mom waited in line for hours to get one but Toys R Us was only allowing one per person and mom had two little girls (I was 4, my sister was 5) so she begged and pleaded and the salesperson finally let her purchase two.

@Misshotsauce: THAT IS AWESOME!! What is up with the front row?  Why do so many have the girl with the dragon tattoo mohawk/weird hair thing going on? (Is it a new trend or did you like to play beauty parlor with your dolls?  I played Dr.  Mine all have bandages on them)
